Tom Croom… photographer? For nudists?!

I forgot to post about this last week… I have been getting requests lately to use some of my random photos on Flickr for various publications. I don’t pretend to be “true” photographer in any sense of the word, but it is flattering when people contact me about it. One...

Building walls of zeros and ones…

So – it seems that the “block” function works the way it should on Facebook.  Once I list someone by their email address or username – they can’t see anything I post anywhere AND I don’t have to see their inane bullshit (i.e. posts on friends how have them as...

Happy Thanksgiving…

Good morning folks… I am sitting here watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and taking time to think about what I am thankful for while waiting for the time to eat. Eating is good. That said – I am thankful for my wife.  I am thankful for my puppy.  I...

When people just don’t get it…

It must be nice to be a 24-year-old girl living at home with mommy and daddy (and, by the way, working for daddy) and have the luxury of enough spare time to complain about sarcastic comments on the Internet to the point of costing someone their job. A grown man...

Anniversary Vacation: The Trip Home…

After a few eventful days in the Nation’s Capitol, Shannon and I decided to break the drive up into a couple of days.  We made a couple of interesting stops: SOUTH OF THE BORDER: My parents drove past this all the time when I was a child.  For those of...

Washington, DC: Final Day…

Yesterday was our final day adventuring about the nation’s capitol.  The pic above is one of my favorites due to the fact that it is taken from the top of the Washington Monument.  I hadn’t gotten to do that since childhood.  Here’s the rundown of yesterday: THE WORLD WAR II...

Washington, DC: Day Two… 0

Washington, DC: Day Two…

On Friday, Shannon and I began discussing what we wanted to see this time around during our visit to Washington, DC.  She pointed out that she had never visited the zoo.  I pointed out that when I visited the zoo last (circa 1993) I remembered it having “a lot of...

Washington, DC: Day One…

Yesterday was our first day spent in Washington, DC.  We had just visited DC three years ago (on our way to  New York City to get engaged) so we decided to spend time seeing things we didn’t get to see last time.  As a matter of fact, I have visited...

Good Morning, Baltimore…

Actually – good evening. When Shannon and I got married, I promised her that we would take a trip once a year for our anniversary and visit a place we had never been together.  This year we’re taking a week and spending time in Washington, DC (and place we both...

Cheese – glorious cheese…

In our little corner of Florida we have some very fun and interesting shops to keep the locals busy.  One of the ones near us is called “The Cheese Cave” – a small little nook near the beach that carries a variety of cheeses imported from Europe.  One of the...

That other convention I don’t talk about…

So I had an email show up this morning notifying me of a post to an old entry on my blog about a convention my attorney told me not to talk about any more. I will point out that the person who posted on my blog claimed to be Beverly...
